The Colts released their final injury report for week 9 of the NFL season.
— Indianapolis Colts (@Colts) November 6, 2020
Wide receiver TY Hilton is DOUBTFUL for Sunday’s game with a groin injury. Hilton has missed practice all week and looks very unlikely to play Sunday against the Ravens. The Colts are 1-9 without Hilton and could really use the veteran against the strong Ravens defense. Someone needs to step up in his absence.
Wide receiver Marcus Johnson is listed as QUESTIONABLE for Sunday with a knee injury. Johnson has been a big play spark on offense for the Colts the last few weeks and the team will need him more to help fill the gap if Hilton can’t go Sunday.
Tight end Mo Alie-Cox is listed as QUESTIONABLE for Sunday with a knee injury also. Alie-Cox only managed two limited practices all week and his status for Sunday is really up in the air. The Colts could be very thin on receivers this Sunday if both Hilton and Johnson can’t go, so utilising the tight end position would be huge bonus if the Colts can and Alie-Cox is a huge part of the tight end group.
Defensive tackle Sheldon Day, guard Quenton Nelson, defensive lineman Tyquan Lewis and wide receiver Michael Pittman missed practice Thursday as they were deemed close contacts with the Colts staff member who tested positive for COVID-19. However, they were all cleared to return to practice today and did so in a full capacity.
Running backs Jordan Wilkins and Jonathan Taylor both practiced fully today and were both weren’t given a game status meaning they should be full go Sunday. The Colts may need to lean on the rushing attack against the Ravens and having their top two running backs fit and ready will be a big boost.
